We baptize believers and their children as a sign and a seal of God’s inclusion into the way of Jesus Christ and his community of followers, the Church.  We believe that God invites and includes us into this community even before we are old enough to know who God is, so we baptize children whose parents are part of the community.  We also baptize adults when they become members of the church, and ask them to commit themselves to the worship and ministry of this church.  Presbyterians usually sprinkle or pour water rather than immerse, but have been known to baptize in lakes or rivers if the whole community is present.
